Just over 600 jumps, Pilot 132 @ ~1.05 lbs/sq ft (with lead on  ;))

I've had it since I had ~250 jumps.

After I get current again I'll be downsizing to a Pilot 117 @ ~1.2 lbs/sq ft.

450 jumps

Pilot 168 @ 1.3-1.4

had it for 250 jumps, with my currency level staying pretty low, I expect to be on it for the forseeable future.

You interested in placing another wager this year Foster?
I don't remember you paying up on the last one with Paul though!

He moved before the end of the season which ended the wager right then :p

I'm down but you will probably kill me... traveling for work at all this season?  ;D
